Kevin Shields told us that we’d have a new My Bloody Valentine album by the end of 2012. That didn’t happen and still the world keeps turning.
However, I just discovered this cover of the classic Loveless track “To Here Knows When” by the multi-talented Canadian singer Rachel Zeffira. Rachel is best known for being half of Cat’s Eyes (the other half being Horrors front man Faris Badwan). Rachel brings a new spin to an old shoegaze song. She uses the piano as a base and creates something both haunting and stunning. Check it out:
Rachel’s new album, The Deserters, was released on 10 December.
